Stand with farmers protecting their land from mining!



Last December, indigenous Peruvian farmer Máxima Acuña Chaupe won a lawsuit for control of her land. Newmont Mining, who wants her land for access to a mountain lake to expand its Yanacocha gold mine, had sued her.
It was a hard fought victory. Over three years, Máxima was beaten and harassed many times by police officers and private security forces backed by Newmont.
Máxima and her family are still subject to harassment. Just last week, police officers and private security forces backed by Newmont's Peruvian subsidiary invaded her home and destroyed parts of her house.
Tell Newmont to denounce police intimidation and to ensure that Yanacocha’s security forces stop harassing Máxima and her family.
Urge Newmont to end harassment of farmers who oppose their mine!
